Building Information Modelling = BIM
We therefore refer to it as BIM to make things simpler. The planning method digitally depicts data and models and assists you during the planning, building, use and demolition phases of a building. And we help you with BIM.
Powerful for the future - with BIM
The concept and idea of BIM first emerged in the construction sector three decades ago. Nevertheless, it has still not fully established itself. The fact that the planning method has a tangible benefit is underlined by positive examples, predominantly from Scandinavian countries.
Here, BIM is a prerequisite, particularly in public large-scale projects. We are also having to change our approach here - on a project as well as a political level.
The definition of BIM, as determined by the US National BIM Standards Committee (NBIMS), is as follows:
“Building Information Modeling is the digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility. As such it serves as a shared knowledge resource for information about a facility forming a reliable basis for decisions during its lifecycle from inception through to demolition.”
The planning method has numerous benefits. And that’s for all interest groups involved: Builders, general contractors, component manufacturers and planners. These include (among others):
No information is lost
Particularly at interfaces and in the case of transmissions, this is otherwise the case and results in considerable additional work.
Central availability of data
With many project partners, relevant data is stored in local folders or on different servers. At BIM, all data is stored in one central database.
Shared access and data exchange
Each project partner has access to the data - whether this access is full or restricted can be individually determined. Furthermore, data can be shared and exchanged, without any losses at all.
